Since I regard my research as being valuable for healthcare professionals concerned with optimizing ethical care for those who are intersex, I’m grateful to receive such positive feedback on the quality of the material presented.” He expressed particular gratitude to SickKids’ clinical bioethicist James Anderson, who invited him to present at Bioethics Week, as well as to his thesis committee (Amy Mullin, Cheryl Misak, Andrew Franklin-Hall, and Darius Bagli, a pediatric urologist at SickKids.
